Local non-profit organization The CALL of Clark County will be hosting The CALL Ball at the Third Street Baptist Church gym in Arkadelphia on Sunday, March 26, from 5-7 p.m. All children under 12 years of age and their caregivers are invited to attend a night of dancing and party games.
“We want to include all children, whether you have a foster parent caregiver, live with an aunt, uncle, grandma, or grandpa, or biological parents,” said Jillian Battaglia, coordinator of The CALL Clark County.
Children will be given the opportunity to write an encouraging card to an anonymous foster child in Clark County. Desserts, crafts, and a photo booth will be available. Attendees can dress up as much or as little as they want.
The CALL partners with Child & Family Services to recruit, train, and support foster families. Among the specific resources The CALL provides is a monthly support group where childcare and a meal is supplied to foster families. The organization also facilitates “The CALL Mall” where clothes, hygiene products, and more, are available to foster care families or biological families who have recently gotten their children back.
Proceeds from ticket sales will go directly into funding the Clark County non-profit. Adult tickets cost $10 and children’s tickets cost $5. Tickets can be purchased at the door, or at eventbrite.com. This event is sponsored by Taylor King Law, Dr. Teed with Arkansas Eye Surgery, and Kiwanis of Clark County.
